Leader on ‘pride of NEPA’ First installment in an occasional series of interviews with area presidents. BY KELLY MCDONOUGH Abington Journal Correspondent

Whether she is busy handling an account for Happenings Magazine in Clarks Summit or wrapping up a black tie affair for the Abington Business and Professionals Association (ABPA), Rosemary Nye is as charming as she is determined to see the Abington-area association thrive. Thus, her position as this year’s president of the organization.

“It’s not my first time being president,” Nye said, stating that she held the office in 2005. “I never left this organization and stayed on the board for many years Rosemary Nye and also served as secreAbington tary.” Business and Nye mentioned that Professional she has “tons” of reaAssociation President sons why she stayed on the board. “I like being able to give back to this community. Being president allows me the opportu-

nity to meet business owners and people in the community who support business owners. The Abington community is the pride of Northeast PA.” As for the reason why she opted to take on the challenge of a second presidency, Nye thinks for a moment. “That’s a hard question. The timing was right and there is a lot that needs to be done in the Abington area. It’s rich in a lot of cultural events for all ages, and our group promotes business and commerce. We’re a partnership in the community.” See Leader, Page 4

Constancy, continuity, stability: the legacy of lives lived for generations on Layton Road in Justus. With the world rushing headlong into change and tumult, the momentum has stalled in this place where families have raised children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and have shunned the lure of movement and resettlement in other parts of the country. The institutions of stability in Justus have always been the school, the church and the fire company, and it is those three basics of Justus life that cemented Lois White and her husband Bill, or William A. Jr., and their son Bill, or William H., to the community. The Whites have the honor of having served the schools of their district for three generations and the volunteer fire companies for four generations. Lois White’s roots were planted firmly in Justus soil in the later half of the 19th century. Her father, Harvey (Jack) Shennen, was born and grew up in the family farmhouse on Rovinsky Road, which intersects with Upper Layton near the current site of Novitsky’s Garage in Justus. Shennen and his two brothers, Walter and William, were entrepreneurs of the most “cutting edge” variety. Enthralled with the mechanical wonders of the day, Shennen left Justus to establish a Dodge/Plymouth automobile dealership in Peckville in the early 1900s. With the advent and excitement of aviation sweeping America, Shennen’s brothers turned their farm into an airport, the first and only one in Justus, called the Mid-Valley Airport. Local legend has it that when a plane crashed on See Layton, Page 7

CLARKS SUMMIT- The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Abingtons is 17 days away. Many people are preparing, including a committee of about 15 Abington Heights High School students. Eighth grader Melanie Fricchione of Clarks Summit is also working to prepare middle school teams. Fricchione, who supervises middle school recruitment, is also on the Luminaria Committee for the second year. But she has been involved with Relay for Life for a long while. She is following in the footsteps of her brother, Pat Fricchione, 19 and her sister, Katie Fricchione, 21, who were both part of the committee while they were in school. Both still attend Relay for Life and their parents also volunteer. The middle school teams areset, but those who want to support the cause can attend the Relay to volunteer or make a donation. Although middle school students have participated previously, this year there are four teams with about eight students on each. The teams consist of mostly eighth grade students, but sixth and seventh graders can

Middle school support ongoing

FACTORYVILLE - This weekend, Endless Mountains Pilots Association and Seamans Airport are offering area residents a chance to spread their wings and soar. The group will be recognizing International Learn to Fly Day, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., by offering airplane rides and free instruction to anyone interested. “What this is, basically, is an event, staged through the EAA (Experiment Aircraft Association)… where the emphasis is trying to bring more people into the world of aviation,” said Endless Mountains Pilots Association President Jim Hunt. The day will begin with a seminar beginning around 11 a.m. Handouts with information will be available, those in attendance will be shown some of the airplanes, followed by a question and answer session, then taken up in the plane with an instructor. In addition to getting to go up in the air, participants will also get a chance to take control of the plane.

“I don’t know how much manipulation of the controls there will be. That will be up to the pilot,” said Seamans Airport owner Bill Dobitsch. “They’ll be able to get at least a feel for what the controls are like,” added Hunt. In addition to giving people an opportunity to get used to being up in the plane, it is also designed to give them a chance to get used to the airport. “A lot of people are kind of intimidated by the airport, and are like, ‘Am I allowed to go here?’ but this is a public-use airport. If they want to come and watch airplanes any time of the year, they can,” said Dobitsch. “And, I have a picnic pavilion here. People can come up, have picnics and relax.” After Saturday, those interested can continue to pursue a pilot’s license at Seamans Airport. The airport has a flight school; lesson cost about $166 after tax. For more information on flight lessons, or Saturday’s event, call Seamans Airport, located at located at 727 Windsock Lane, Factoryville, at 570.945.5125

What: 2011 Relay for Life

of the Abingtons. Relay for Life is an overnight event to help raise money for cancer research. All donations benefit The American Cancer Society. There are several teams formed and members take turns walking the high school track at all times during the event. When: June 4 to 5, 2011 Where: Abington Heights High School track. Info: Visit http://www.relayforlife.org to start a team or call 1.800.ACS.2345 join. Each student pays $10 to sign up and then has to raise at least $100. “Most of us have raised well over $100 though,” said Fricchione. Fricchione said her favorite part is the Luminaria ceremony, during which candles are placed around the track to honor those who have survived the fight against cancer and those whose lives were cut short by it. Then participants walk a lap in silence. There is a suggested donation of $10 to put a name on one of the candles. “That’s what relay’s really about,” said Fricchione, “I love how everyone comes together to support the fight against cancer.”

Supervisors voice dismay over ARWA plan BY TARA KOVAL Abington Journal Correspondent

SOUTH ABINGTON TWP. - South Abington Township Supervisors expressed dismay concerning the Abington Regional Wastewater Authority (ARWA) votes against obtaining outside requests for proposals regarding their plan to renovate and rebuild the wastewater treatment plant to meet new federal requirements. The authority voted 6-2 to continue with its already employed engineering firm, Gannet Fleming, at a cost of $32 million paid to the firm. Currently, the cost of the plan is expected to triple the quarterly sewer costs for South Abington, Clarks Summit and Clarks Green residents. Residents’ quarterly sewer bill in 2007 was $60; however, that is expected to reach about $175 to $180 per quarter by project completion in 2015. South Abington Township Supervisors had hoped to obtain additional, outside requests for proposals in an attempt to keep the project as cost effective for the community as possible while simultaneously adhering to the Regional Act 537 Plan. Township Manager David O’Neill pointed out that while authority members are willing to obtain bids for the

authority’s insurance plans, they would not agree to obtain bids regarding the sewer project. “The opportunity was there for them to save a substantial amount of money,” he said. Township Supervisor Joseph Sproul expressed the Supervisors’ frustration concerning the fact that “we appointed them,” he said. “ARWA should be serving the public.” Giles Stanton added, “We’ll never know if we could have saved the residents money.” Additionally, the township has plans to replace the rubber padding for the splash park at South Abington Park. Concrete and Landscape Designs, a North Carolina-based company, will replace the padding for $44,500. The original padding was expected to last about seven years, and currently it has been used for 11 years. Supervisor Mark Dougherty stated that the splash park “is well worth what we paid for it, and it gets a lot of use.” Supervisors hope the park will be ready by May 27 for the Memorial Day holiday. Finally, O’Neill thanked Township Recycling Coordinator Susan McLane, stating she “did a wonderful job doing the Recycling Program Performance paper-

work.” He said the township will receive a grant in the amount of $42,377 reflecting

a collection in 2009 of 1547.2 tons of residential and commercial recycled materials.

NEWTON TWP. - Newton Township supervisors passed an ordinance that will place a 10ton weight limit on vehicles traveling in the township during its monthly meeting May 9. The ordinance is in response to the state’s recent passage of a similar ordinance that placed a 10-ton weight limit for vehicles on all state roads. Those in attendance questioned how the township would be able to enforce the ordinance without scales to weigh vehicles that may be in violation. Supervisors explained that, with the ordinance in place, if the township gets enough complaints on a road, they can request assistance from the state. “If you do it and you want to get the state involved on a road where you are having a particular problem, you can do it. If you do not pass this ordinance, you can’t do it, period, that’s it,” said Supervisor John Pardue. The ordinance will cost the township $5,500 for new signs to post the weight limit. In other business, members of Community Counts were in attendance at Monday’s meeting. The group recently drafted the community rights ordinance, with the help of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, a nonprofit organization, to ban gas drilling in Newton Township. The supervisors discussed the ordinance with those in attendance, and solicitor Joe Sileo, who gave his initial reaction to the ordinance. “Since the last meeting, I’ve had a chance to look at this and look at it with some colleagues, and we looked at it with respect to general principles of municipal law, and we’ve looked at it with respect to state law and the precedent that’s out there, and it’s my opinion that this law is not legally viable,” said Sileo. In addition to Sileo, the ordinance has been given to the township engineer, solicitor, planning commission and the Gas and Oil Environmental Impact Committee, who will give their opinion on it. The Gas and Oil Environmental Impact Committee was appointed during the supervisor’s work session prior to the meeting. The committee is comprised of Gary Martenson, Sue Sherman, Linda Nealon, Leon Stankowski, Tim Habeeb, Gregg Raino and Bob Naegele. “Basically, it will be the same as our planning commission. They are on their own, they will meet, they’ll make recommendations, they will research what they are recommending, and the recommendations they will then submit to us for our review,” said Pardue. In addition to the community rights ordinance, the committee and the township supervisors will be reviewing other ways to protect the township and regulate drilling. Other methods discussed included tightening zoning laws.

Meet the President

There are five major events in the Abington community sponsored by the association, one of them being the Clarks Summit Festival of Ice. This year marked its seventh anniversary. There is also the Summer Fest that typically takes place over the Fourth of July weekend. Nye explained that it gives parents a chance to learn important skills such as the proper way to put a child in a car seat or the opportunity to have their children fingerprinted. “It’s all supported by business owners as a free benefit of living in this area.” Nye also mentioned the Fall Fest and its scarecrow displays throughout the community and Home for the Holidays event, which includes a parade complete with Santa and free snacks and cider at local businesses hosting open house. However, Nye believes the association’s signature event is The Men in Black, where local men in the community model tuxedos to raise funds for community projects and organizations. “I’m passionate about The Men in Black event. It’s why I’m on the board,” Nye said. According to Nye, the idea for the fundraiser has only been made possible by the generous donation of Nancy Sarno and Sarno and Sons Tuxedos. providing the tuxedos for the business men to model. This year marked its second year of being able to extend the outreach and being able to give a portion of the proceeds to Marley’s Mission. When asked why this particular charity, Nye explained, “The last time I was president of the organization, Matt Burne was a board member. The estate of Matt Burne donated the land to be used to build a horse therapy ranch for physically abused children and their families. It will soon be opening on Edella Road (in South Abington Township.) Because he did a lot for the Abington community, there was no better fit when it came time to pick a charity. This is what ABPA does.” Nye talked about the association as being part of the wel-

CLARKS GREEN- The May 9 meeting of the Clarks Green Borough Council drew some debate regarding the draft Act 537 plan from the Abington Regional Wastewater Authority (ARWA). The council had previously voted to submit the draft of the plan to their planning commission, as well as to the general public, for review then comment. The plan and comments would then be sent back to the authority. However, at a recent meeting, council voted to rescind that decision due to a South Abington Twp. supervisors decision to hold off on submission of the plan to their planning committee. Clarks Green Borough Council decision was described as “an act of solidarity” with South Abington Twp. The decision to hold off submission of Act 537 was made due to council’s wish that the plans for the new sewer plant be competitively bid. Planning Commission Chairman John Earley stated that council needed to redouble its efforts to push for bidding. Solicitor Al Weinschenk mentioned that Act 537 and the issue of bidding were separate and that council needed to submit the Act 537 plans to the planning committee and to the public in order for the council and the sewer authority to comply with state guidelines. He also stated that the risk of fines or penalties was present. Council President Marie King stated that, “The board members of the Abington Regional Wastewater Authority are a little more engaged in this review process then any of us.” She explained that the board was comprised of a civil engineer and an environmental attorney, among others, and that they are not concerned with politics, simply with getting the job done. She also addressed the issue of the cost. “I think most of our residents know that paying less doesn’t always pay off. Sure, you’re going to get a better rate, but are you going to get a better job?” The council voted five to two to turn the draft plan over to the Planning Commission and also to the public for review and comment.

L.T. student wins $1,000 essay prize BY BEN FREDA Abington Journal Correspondent

FACTORYVILLE - Lackawanna Trail student Kim Martin, Factoryville, recently won an essay contest from the district rotary of the Trail Rotary Club. She and other Lackawanna Trail students competed against 33 other schools in northeastern Pa. by writing essays answering the question: “Service above self – what does it mean?” Martin wrote in her essay that service does not have to be about doing a large project. “It’s good to do small, every day things that don’t seem important, but they are,” said Martin.

Trail Rotary Club President Barbara Petty and member Rose Opshinsky judged the contest. The judges chose Martin ’s essay to be the winner and she was presented a $1,000 award from the club at Gin’s Tavern May 10. This is the first time Martin has entered an essay contest. “I’m very happy and surprised,” she said. “I can’t believe that I’ve won out of all the essays.” Martin is a junior at Lackawanna Trail Jr./Sr. High School, where she has been a part of the Madrigal chorus, an auditions-only chorus, for two years.

Tomorrow’s Leaders prevent bullying The Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce Tomorrow’s Leader’s Today Program hosted a program April 26 at Keystone College. More than 500 high school students attended this youth leadership seminar on anti-bullying. This half-day seminar, “Let’s Make a Change….Stop Bullying!” addressed 500 middle school students from 15 different school districts. It identified and explained the types of bullying as well as discussed the risks associated with bullying from three different angles - the target, the bystander, the bully. “Today’s seminar is a true example of youth leadership in action. TLT class of 2011 did an outstanding job and today���s messages will now be carried to 13 different middle schools of our region,” said Nicole Barber, program director.

LAYTON

Continued from Page 1

ABINGTON JOURNAL/JO ANN WALCZAK

Lois White with son Bill, left, and grandson Bill. Lois’ roots in Justus extend to the late 19th century. Son Bill is currently the Waverly Township manager. The Whites have produced three generations of teachers, serving the young people of the community and four generations of fire and rescue workers.

ant fire chief for the Justus Company, making it a generational coup. “Much of what we still do is centered around the fire company,” concluded “young” Bill. Even though a burning in his chest while dragging hose at a fire resulted in triple bypass heart surgery, Bill remarked, “I still do everything except scuba diving. I run on all the fires, but I don’t drag hose as I used to.” The community has benefited not only from the service of the Whites to the volunteer fire department but also to the local schools. Lois White graduated from Mansfield State College in 1944 and was hired as Blakely High School’s first home economics teacher. Blakely bought the Hurd house near the high school to be their home economics building, and Lois was the first home economics teacher to use that facility. Her teaching career was cut short, though, when son Bill was born; state law required that female teachers stay out of school for two years after the birth of a baby. Bill’s birth was followed by son David in 1950 and daughter Joyce in 1951. Consequently, Lois White was able to enjoy the life of a Justus mother since she ended up out of the classroom until all three children were in school. Originally, the children of Justus were educated in the one-room school house on Justus Corners until the Scott School was built over

the mountain in Montdale in the 1930s. It was in the Scott School that Lois White resumed her teaching career in 1960 . Lois White continued at the Scott School until it merged with Mayfield, Jermyn and Greenfield Township into the Lakeland School District. The home economics program ended at Scott with this merger, and Lois White was moved into the elementary classroom, teaching second and fifth grades at the former Scott building and eventually in the new Lakeland Elementary until her retirement in 1982. There are few Justus students of the 1960s who do not remember cooking, apron making and sewing with Mrs. White in the Scott School. Lois White became enamored with sewing under the guidance of her mother Ruth Cure Shennen. Ruth Shennen taught her daughter to sew when she was 7. Today, at the age of 88, Lois White has her sewing machine tabled prominently in a front window where she can sew while watching the activity on Layton. Since the death of her husband, sewing and painting have been the focuses of her retirement activity. In recent years, she has sewn 355 homemade, cotton lap throws in a variety of colors and quilt-like patterns. “I have given them to all of my friends, relatives, veterans, nursing homes, church bazaars, and to the Abington Manor as bingo prizes.” In fact, anyone who

steps into Lois White’s home will probably leave with a gift from her sewing machine. Her devotion to teaching was also a legacy from her mother, Ruth, who lived near Heart Lake but walked from there to Jermyn High School, where she taught from 1907 to 1920. Ruth Cure lived with a family in Jermyn during the school week and walk home for the weekends. Eventually, Ruth Cure married Harvey Shennen, ending her long distance treks to school. These two generations of teachers, in what would become the Lakeland School District, blossomed to three when Ruth’s grandson/Lois’s son, Bill, later taught in the Mayfield building and served as head teacher. Eventually he became the district’s transportation director, working from the Lakeland School District administrative offices. Bill’s sister, Joyce White Piedmont, became an elementary school teacher in the Lackawanna Trail School District, where she has taught for 37 years, and brother David became an industrial arts teacher in Virginia. Honing their teaching skills, Lois White, son Bill and Joyce Piedmont continued their studies and all three received their master’s degrees in the same year. As Lois White’s son Bill reflected on his life in Justus, his memories raced back to his Sunday School class at the village church, Mt. Bethel Baptist, down the road from their home, where he met with his lifelong friends Marsha James, Joan Pregnar, Tom Fountain, Jim Willcutt, Virginia Hughes and Nancy Yczkowski. It was there that

the most intense interests and goals of his life began. “Ken Davies was my teacher,” Bill White remembered, “and he had a big impact on my life.” Davies was the fire chief in Justus, and he encouraged Bill White to become active in fire rescue. It was also Davies’ influence that spurred Bill White’s interest in business. Davies had a dog boarding and feed business in Justus where Bill White worked every summer and throughout college. When Davies expanded to include western wear at his store, he asked Bill Davies if he would like to buy the jeans and western wear business, so in 1979 Bill White purchased the business, expanded into work wear and became one of Justus’s prime businesses, K-9 Corral, still in operation just off Layton on Justus Boulevard. But Bill White’s entrepreneurial spirit began long before the K-9 Corral. It bloomed on the very pavement of Layton Road in the late 1950s to 1960s. There were few young men in Justus at the time who knew the populace of Justus as well as Bill White. “I knew everyone, and I could remember names. I would ride my bike three miles every morning delivering papers,” and when the family spent summer months at their cottage on Chapman Lake, Bill White would ride down from there to complete his Layton Road paper route. “I’d rarely pass a car, and whoever did pass, I knew them. Jack and Ethel Hunter’s dog King and Eddie Bonczkiewicz’s dog Fuzzy went with me on my route for three years. Once I met

PAGE 7A

a bear at Paul White‘s house. I pedaled fast and took refuge in Violet Owens’s house.” Today, Bill White, an avid hunter, still seems to know everyone, including the wildlife, in Justus and environs, and he always finds time to “shoot the breeze.” Today, he is the manager of Waverly Township; previously, he did a similar job as manager for Scott Township, the larger municipality to which Justus belongs. Even as a teenager, Bill White worked for the township. “I plowed and shoveled cinders out the back,” Bill White said. “I was a cinder spreader…on Layton Road.” It didn’t matter what job Bill White worked, “I always wanted to do the best I could. I am happy with almost everything, and I’ve made a reputation. You will get more than you asked for when you hire me.” Lois White’s memories are rich with stories of her five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, camping trips across country with the family and summer trips to the cottage at Chapman Lake, but always Lois White and son Bill come back to life on Layton Road. “This absolutely has to be one of the best places to raise a family,” Bill White said. “There was a community spirit.” Lois White added, “There’s a feeling of safety here,” with Bill and his family living only a mile north of her on Layton and daughter Joyce living a mile south just off Layton. Lois White sits ensconced firmly in the epicenter of her Justus world between her children on Layton.

Bell Mountain, which runs parallel to Layton in Justus, Amelia Earhartcame to Justus and the Shennen airport to investigate. In 1945, the Shennens sold the airport to Bill Hutchins of Peckville, and the next year, with 30 new airplanes in the hangar, a fire broke out that consumed all of the planes and put the airport out of business permanently. After numerous owners, the barn on the old Shennen farm eventually became the Stage Coach Inn. Today, Shennen’s grandson, Bill (Lois’s son) makes his home on Layton next to the house where his great uncles, the Shennen brothers, lived more than 50 years before. Bill and Lois White purchased their home on Layton Road in 1947 because they “wanted to be up the country.” Their quaint Cape Cod was the second home built by Howard Detty, who was responsible for constructing more than 30 homes on and near Layton Road in Justus. It was a time when everyone who lived in Justus knew each other well, and lives were inextricably connected by proximity and involvement in church, school and fire department activities. Longtime Justus residents Bill Priest, Duke Farrell and Willard Bright worked at the Olyphant power plant in the late 1940s with Bill White, and they encouraged Bill White to move “up the country” and join the Justus Volunteer Fire Company, where they were leaders. Bill White’s father had been one of the founders of the Blakely Hose Company, so it was natural that he should get involved with the fire company. He became a trustee and chief driver. Bill and Lois White’s first child, Bill, was born in 1947, and it was inevitable that he too would become a member of the fire department. Sixty-two years later, “young” Bill is still as passionate about fire fighting and life saving as he was in his teens when he entered rescue service. Following in his father’s footsteps, he became the chief driver for the Justus Fire Company, its assistant fire chief, an ambulance lieutenant and, currently, a trustee. He also served in the Scott Hose Company as ambulance captain for 28 years and as chief engineer for 10 years. In addition, he became chief of the “Dive Rescue Specialists,” a dive team serving Lackawanna and Susquehanna counties in active emergency water, boat, and ice rescue. Later, “young” Bill’s son, Billy (William J.), became assist-

What natural wonder of Pennsylvania is approximately 50 miles long and almost 1,000 feet deep? It’s the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania, of course! Also known as Pine Creek Gorge, this canyon offers pristine vistas for all to enjoy. Both National Geographic and Sports Illustrated have featured this jewel of Pennsylvania in their publications, and now the Dietrich is inviting you to see the Grand Canyon of PA for yourself. That’s right. Join us a scenic bus trip to take in the sights of the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania and Wellsboro Thursday, June 2. With Jane Frye as our guide, we will experience 1.5 miles of easy walking to Barbour Rock in Colton State Park for views of the canyon from the west rim, enjoy a box lunch and take a narrated, covered wagon ride through the canyon. Then we will visit the Leonard Harrison State Park overlook for expansive views from the canyon’s east rim. Before we leave Wellsboro, we will visit the Wynkin, Blynkin and Nod Fountain and have free time to wander around the town of Wellsboro. We will leave the Dietrich at 7:45 a.m. and will return around 7 p.m. Admission is $100 and space is limited. Call the Dietrich at 570.996.1500 to register. For those of you who are birders, I encourage you to bring binoculars. This will be my third time visiting the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania and I am always amazed by the gorge’s majesty.

We will kick things off with Pennsylvania Council on the Arts rostered artist Rand Whipple of Box of Light Theatre.

For the first time in history, American and Soviet fighting men and tanks stood arrayed against each other, only yards apart, at the Berlin Wall. Neither leader really understood the motives of the other and both tried cynically to manipulate events. The author, a former editor for The Wall Street Journal and Berlin bureau chief, bases his insights on a wealth of new documents and interviews. “The Boy from Baby House 10” by Alan Philips and John Lahutsky. At the age of 18 months, a boy named Vanya, afflicted with cerebral palsy, was abandoned by his mother and sent to a bleak, state-run Russian orphanage called Baby House 10 and from there to a mental asylum. Two women, a young Russian named Vika and Sarah, the wife of British journalist Alan Philps, knew that Vanya was no ordinary child and had been cruelly misdiagnosed. After a lot of red tape, Vanya was adopted and brought to the United States by his new mother, a single woman named Paula Lahutsky. He is now a high school student living in Bethlehem. He collaborated with Philps to tell his story. “The North Country Murder of Irene Izak” by Dave Shampine. Irene Izak, a young French teacher from Scranton, headed toward a new job and the promise of a new life in Quebec in June of 1968. She never reached the border. Her body was discovered in a ravine by a state trooper patrolling Route 81 in New York’s North Country. Here is the true story of a vicious and confounding killing that has remained unsolved for 40 years.

“We made a commitment here at Woods & Company to concentrate on American- manufactured furniture, so we try and highlight those things that are made in America.” Langan mentioned another interesting feature about the chair: its size. “…If you compare it to a standard rocker, it’s more jumbo. It’s really a fit for any size body, so anybody can feel comfortable in it. It’s not scaled down, which is really great.” The chair sells for $400 and can be ordered finished in a stain of the customer’s preference. The chair has to be shipped from North Carolina, so those interested should expect a one to two week wait.

Three generations of stories BY SHAUNA MCNALLY Smcnally@theabingtonjournal.com

SCOTT TWP. - Gary R. Ryman said it is pretty cool to be the “center of the Oreo.” He is the second generation in three generations of firefighters. “It’s neat because I got to see what it’s like being the son of a firefighter and being the father of one,” said Ryman. Forty-nine-year-old Ryman just published his first book at the end of April, titled, “Fire Men: Stories from Three Generations of a Firefighting Family.” His book, published by Tribute Books, and edited by Stephanie Longo, took about four and a half years to write and publish, said Ryman. He currently is set to appear at three book signings scheduled in the local area and New York. The first will be May 20, at Maiolatesi Wine Cellars on Green Grove Road in Scott Township from 6 to 10 p.m., in conjunction with the Justus Volunteer Fire Company Wine Tasting Fundraiser. The second will take place June 5 at Kristofor’s in Endicott, N.Y. And the third, June 24 at Tiffany’s Tap and Grill on Main Street in Eynon from 6 to 9 p.m. The book tells the stories of events that he, his father Richard Ryman and his son, Michael Ryman experienced throughout their years with fire departments. Some of the stories are funny, while others are very tragic. Ryman explained, “It’s a

book for everyone. Everyone can get something out of it, even people who aren’t involved with fire services at all.” Ryman is originally from Endicott, N.Y., where he started with a fire company in 1977 at 16. He then attended the University of Maryland, where he was a “live in” or “bunker” at the fire department in Montgomery County, Md. That meant he was allowed to live there free of charge, but was always on call. The fire department he worked for received about 1,500 calls per year. However, now his son is a “live in” in Maryland as well, and his fire station gets about 9,000 calls per year. “It was tough doing that with being in school,” said Ryman. “There was probably only one night a week where I actually slept eight hours.” Ryman has worked on the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) side of the business and on the fire fighting side as well . During his time in fire services, he served as fire chief, so he has seen it all. After graduating from the University of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in fire science, he moved to Scott Township, where he worked for the fire department for 25 years and currently lives with his wife, Michelle Ryman, and their two children, Michael, 19 and Megan, 17. Ryman still goes on calls occasionally. .

Ryman said, “I don’t go a lot anymore. It’s a lot easier for the younger guys to be on the inside of a burning building.” On why he decided to write a book, Ryman said, “I thought there were some interesting stories, and I started One storyRyman shared from the bookwas about a family friend who experienced a small kitchen fire in her house. Home at the time was a girl of 16 or 17, Ryman said, and instead of contacting the fire department she called Ryman. Luckily, the blaze did not get out of control and they later laughed about the situation.Ryman said the social media website Facebook has been useful in publicizing his book. His publisher also created a website at www.FireMen-Book.com. “Fire Men: Stories from Three Generations of a Fire-

For most family members, their father may be as important to them as the late President John F. Kennedy. This Father’s Day, June 19, with the help of Woods & Company, every Father can enjoy the same comforts as a president. Val Langan, who co-owns Woods & Company with Nettie Goldstein, said “The Kennedy Rocker,” has been a big seller for the store all year, especially as a popular Christmas and Father’s Day gift. Manufactured exclusively by the P&P Chair Company, “The Kennedy Rocker” is made of solid oak, and has a high cane back, cane seat and steam-bent back posts that curve around the back. It is set low for comfortable elbow support and has wide armrests for perfect balance. “It’s still made the same way it was made back when President Kennedy used it,” said Langan. “He used it for his back, and it was really the only thing that gave him pleasure for sitting. He had a really bad back from the PT 109 accident that he had and he ended up having back surgeries and that sort of thing, and this is the only thing that gave him relief,” she added. The rocker was developed in the 1920s by W. C. Page Sr., and manufactured in their factory in North Carolina. In 1953, Dr. Janet Travell purchased the chair and later recommended to her patient, then Senator Kennedy, that he use the chair. The chair proved to offer Kennedy much relief, and he ended up purchasing several over the years. They were kept in places the president would frequent, including Air Force One and The Oval Office. Eventually word of the rocker spread, the chair became a popular item nationwide and still is today. “It’s probably our best- selling rocker,” said Langan. “It’s probably a combination of…people look for The Kennedy Rocker because it has a history to it, but it’s also the workmanship, and because it’s made in America.”

cial effects. Campers will also learn to shoot, edit and score their own short films. This class will be held from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Admission to each camp is $60. Call the Dietrich at 570.996.1500 to sign up. For adults, we also have a couple of interesting class offerings that are just around the corner. For example, on Monday, May 23, Esther Harmatz will be teaching a Jewelry Making: Easy Attachments workshop. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., we will learn about different types of jewelry attachments and easy wire wrapping techniques. Esther will also show us how to make neat loops and coils, add bead embellishments, and how to use a peg template. While learning these skills, we will create a bracelet and a pair of earrings to take home. Admission is $60 and all materials are provided. Preregistration is required, so call us at 570.996.1500 to register. Last week I peeked in on the jewelry class that Esther offered at the Dietrich and it looked like students were having a great time. They were creating unique silver pendants and other pieces of jewelry as they learned how to work with silver clay. It is amazing what you can do in three hours with a desire to learn and a great teacher. As you can see, the Dietrich is so much more than the movies!

Dunkin’ Brands, Inc., the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, honored Northeastern Pa., residents Jerry and Sophia Fives as the 2010 Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisees of the Year -- one of the company’s highest distinctions -- recognizing them as top role models for Dunkin’ Donuts values and best practices. “Jerry and Sophia are seasoned leaders with high standards for operational excellence,” said Nigel Travis, Dunkin’ Brands CEO and Dunkin’ Donuts President. “As such, our brand management team routinely turns to them for input on new programs, products and service enhancements. We are proud to honor them for representing the very best of the Dunkin’ Brands system.” For Jerry and Sophia, Dunkin’ Donuts represents family and the close-knit community in which they were both raised. High school sweethearts, they

decided to pursue a future in owning and operating a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise after college, buying the business from Sophia’s father. Together, they learned the business from the ground up. “We are truly honored to receive this award, not only on behalf of our family and employees, but also our community which has been so supportive of our business over the years,” said Jerry and Sophia Fives. “We are fortunate to live and work in Lackawanna County, and we are proud to bring this recognition back to our region.” The Fives, who currently operate four Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in Northeastern Pa. and have a new location opening in early summer on Route 6 in Dickson City, received their award at the Dunkin’ Brands Franchisee & Enterprise Awards event in March at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston, Mass.

SCRANTON – Lackawanna Trail’s Lauren Ellsworth and Lakeland’s Tori Doyle and Al Tuzze all earned return trips to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Track and Field Championships with their PHOTO COURTESY ALICE STUFFLE efforts in Monday’s District 2 Class AA Championships. Lauren Ellsworth, shown above, won at 100 and 400 meters at District 2 Class AA Ellsworth and Doyle qualified Championships. in two events each, but with dramatically different approach-

es. While Ellsworth earned a chance to compete at Shippensburg University May 27-28 by setting two meet records in dominating efforts, Doyle made it in two of the three girls’ events in which District 2 is sending more than two competitors to the state meet. Ellsworth, a two-time state medalist at 400 meters, won at 100 and 400 meters. “That record has been there a long time,” Ellsworth said after posting 57.53 in the 400 to knock one-hundredth of a second off the 26-year-old mark held by Debbie Moran of

Meyers. “I hadn’t done a sub-58 yet this season.” Ellsworth ran the 100 on the district level for the first time and ran away with a record time of 12.22 seconds. Doyle advanced in each of the two events in which she has medaled in the past on the state level. The district is limited to two Class AA competitors in each state event, with two exceptions – when a second-place tie cannot be broken and when an athlete finishes third or worse but exceeds the state qualifying standard. Doyle finished third in the

KINGSTON – Josh Palmer avoided the possibility of the District 2-4 Class AAA boys’ tennis singles championship coming down to a deciding third set. Palmer rallied from a three-game deficit in the second set to take his fourth straight District 2 title Friday afternoon with a 6-1, 7-6 (7-1) victory over Wyoming Valley West’s Steve Brand. The Abington Heights senior won the full District 2-4 tournament three out of four years and was recognized as District 2 champion the other year as the district player who advanced the farthest. The last title proved to be the most difficult. “I’ve never had to come back like that,” Palmer said, “especially not in a district final.” Brand won the first game of the match before Palmer took the next six to win the first set. The second seed then took a 5-2 lead in the second set. “He’s a great player,” Palmer said. “He played like he had nothing to lose. “It’s tough being the number-one seed. See Tennis , Page 3

Brown’s Gym reaches out to area youth BY DON MCGLYNN dmcglynn@theabingtonjournal.com

CLARKS SUMMIT - Brown’s Gym is offering the area’s youth an opportunity to stay in shape this summer. The Clarks Summit gym launched its new Teen Initiative program May 15. From now until the end of summer, any child between the ages of 12 and 17 can sign up for a free two-month gym membership. “What we’re seeing is if you’re a high school athlete, you pretty much get everything,” said owner Jim Brown. “You’ve got the sports that you’re in, you’ve got the coaches, you’ve got access to the weight rooms, you’ve got coaches in the weight rooms, you pretty much got all kinds of help. But, if you’re not a teen that’s a competing athlete in high school, you’ve got nothing. “So it’s either all or nothing.

So, what we’re trying to do is close that gap up, and give all the teens a chance.” Brown added that part of the inspiration for the program came from the thought of the medical problems children who do not exercise regularly are forced to face. “When you start hearing about kids with type 2 diabetes and they’re 13 years old, this is a chronic problem that’s happening across this country. So, we’re going to see if we could help with the fight against that. “And I was one of those kids that was not in any sports. I was too little to be in any sports… I wasn’t obese, but sports were not available to us... So, remembering what that was like as a kid, it seemed like a natural thing to do for these kids.” Those interested can sign up at Brown’s Gym and must have a parent or guardian present, SMS 17 RCC 19 LSA, Matt Nelson; LSA, Kevin Bailey; SMS, Mario Giannone; RCC, James Cunningham; SMS, Anthony Fletcher; LSA, Joseph Lewis; LSA, Mark Kobierecki; RCC, Kyle McAndrew; LSA, Dean Angeloni; LSA Matt Barkowski Varsity Girls LSA 18 RCC 37 LSA 7 SMS 14 SMS 10 RCC 11 LSA, Erin Kranich; LSA, Moriah Lukasik; SMS, Allie Rainey; RCC, Megan Moran; LSA, Isabelle Tokash; LSA, Maddie Harie; LSA, Alexa Davis; LSA, Lexie Green; SMS, Gabriella Fletcher; RCC, Lauren Aldrich.

along with proof of age. An assessment will then be scheduled for the child, which a parent or guardian must also attend. “This will not be the normal assessment I give my normal clientele, it has different needs to it. With that age group, Mom or Dad need to know for themselves that they’re dropping that child at a place where they can be safe,” said Brown. During the assessment, the details of the program will be reviewed with the child and guardian, as well the types of supplements and drinks that the child can purchase. The child will also go through a few, simple tests to determine their flexibility, as well as their strengths and weaknesses. Once signed up for the program, participants will attend an orientation that will be held

daily at a specific time, where each child will be taught how to use the equipment by the staff. Members of the program will then have access to the gym on weekends and until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. “This is a way for us to give back very significantly,” said Brown. “We can really affect each kid, you can give a kid a proper mentor, and they’re looking for one. I can’t think of a better summer experience for kids that age to have. They can either go find a mentor in a video game someplace, where they’re blowing people up, or they can get off their butt, and go to the gym, and in September, when they go back to school, be in a whole new condition and shape.” In addition to the Teen Initiative program, a sports conditioning class, which will begin in mid-June, will also be avail-

able at a cost of $10 per child. The class will cover weight training, as well as stretching and flexibility type exercises. Those interested can sign up for their two-month free membership any time between now and August 15. Memberships

CLARKS SUMMIT- An Abington Heights High School senior setter leads the way for the boy’s volleyball team during the 2011 season. Eric Wasser, Clarks Summit, compiled 45 assists, five kills, two blocks, 11 points, two aces and six digs en route to a 3-2 victory over Lake-Lehman in Abington’s latest match-up. Behind Wasser’s senior leadership, Abington Heights has earned 12 wins this season to just two loses. The Comets also won the 2011 Tunkhannock

tournament. Wasser’s love for volleyball stems from his parents Eric and Bobbi. “My dad played for Abington when he was in high school,” Wasser said. “I had always played with my parents and I’ve just always loved playing whenever I can.” In his senior season, Wasser is set on winning the district championship. A district championship will not come easily, but Wasser admitted this is one of the best parts about playing for the Comets. “Everyone always plays their

best game against us,” Wasser said. “It seems like every team steps up their play for us.” Wasser also played soccer at Abington Heights on a team that lost in the district championship game. His other hobbies include running, playing guitar and competing in Odyssey of the Mind. Wasser’s favorite athlete is Bastian Schweinsteiger, who plays for the German soccer team. “His creativity and pure determination on the field are inspiring,” Wasser said. Upon graduating from Abing-

ton Heights, Wasser will head to Ann Arbor, Mich., where he will become a Wolverine. “I’ll be majoring in engineering at the University of Michigan and plan on entering law school to become a patent attorney,” Wasser said. With the end of the school year approaching, Wasser will lead his team into the playoffs with hopes of a successful postseason. “I’m not sure what my greatest accomplishment as a player is yet, but hopefully the end of this season will show me that,” Wasser said.

“We got base-runners,” Peters said. “We made them [Blue Ridge] make some plays and we were patient at the plate.” In the top of the sixth, Flynn replaced Holmes after five inning of work. Blue Ridge tried to claw back into the game when Jacob Roberts hit an RBI single to cut the Lackawanna Trail lead to four. Later in the inning, the Fighting Tigers threatened with the bases loaded and the tying run at the plate but Murazzi worked out of the jam. Chris Zawiski lined out to centerfield and Pruitt grounded out to third to end the scoring threat. Devin Hawk replaced Pruitt at pitcher in the bottom of the sixth inning, struck out two and kept the deficit at four runs.

Mason Mecke capitalized and hit an RBI double that cut the lead to 5-4. After Pete Murazzi walked Matt Aten hit an RBI single to tie the game at five. Bruce Benko walked to load bases with no outs. After a runner interference call, Pruitt threw a wild pitch, which scored Murazzi to give the Lions their first lead of the game. Tanner Holmes added to the Lackawanna Trail lead on an RBI double that scored Benko and Victor Rosa. Flynn capped off the seven-run fifth with an RBI single that gave the Lions a 10-5 lead.

enth and didn’t allow the Fighting Tigers to reach base. Holmes earned the victory after pitching five innings. Holmes was shaky in the first three innings but he kept the Lions in the game so they had an opportunity to climb back into the game. He compiled six strike outs while giving up eight hits and four earned runs. “I think he was a little fired up because the team knew what was riding on this game,” Peters said. “I think he had a little too much adrenaline going in the beginning but he settled down and pitched a great game.” Zawiski hit an RBI single in the bottom of the first to give Blue Ridge an early 1-0 lead. After an errant throw on a pick-off attempt at third in the top of the second the Fighting Tigers gained a two-run lead. Pruitt hit a two-run

double in the top of the third to give Blue Ridge a 4-0 lead. Steve Miller hit a tworun single in the bottom of the third to cut the lead to two. After a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the fourth and an error in the top of the fifth, Blue Ridge held a 5-3 lead before the Lions’ seven-run barrage in the bottom of the fifth. Lackawanna Trail will face off against Western Wayne at home in its final regular season game before entering the district playoffs. Peters said the Lions have to work on their defense in order to succeed in the post-season. “We can’t give other teams extra outs especially as you move forward into the playoffs,” Peters said. “Those teams are all good teams and if you give them extra outs it could really hurt.”

Middle blocker Lady Lion excels at third base powers Trail team to success BY: ROB TOMKAVAGE

FACTORYVILLE - The Lackawanna Trail High School volleyball team went from finishing 5-7 in 2010, to the Lackawanna League champions, with an overall record of 11-1 in 2011. At the center of the team’s turnaround has been three-year varsity starter, middle blocker Lyle Sweppenheiser. “(His job is) Mostly to shut down the other team’s big hitters. He’s our first line of defense on the block,” said head coach Deb Wozniak. “But he’s also our biggest offensive threat. That’s pretty normal, at that position they’re usually your best hitter and best blocker.” Sweppenheiser leads the team in kills, and his play this season is one of the reasons the Lions will be ranked, at the very least, second, when the district playoffs begin May 23. The high seeding means the team will play their first game at home. The junior has been a force on the team since his freshman year, when he said he took to the game very quickly. “I’ve always had an interest in it. There’s no junior high program, so I was on the track team, and my history teacher was the volleyball coach, Mr. (Curt) Sohns, at the time and he just said I should give it a try… and I fell in love with it on the first day.” “He told me a lot of the stuff was the same as basketball, and I’ve played basketball my whole life, so it was basically just picking up the idea of the game. And once I picked that up, he told me I would get some varsity time and then the one game he just put me in, and I’ve played since then.” Sweppenheiser said he started playing weak-side hitter, before moving to middle blocker during his first year on the team. His talents haven’t gone

She has a tough frame of mind.” Croasdale credited the coaching of Brander as a big reason she has developed into a solid player. “He’s helped a lot with my hitting,” she said. “Last year, I didn’t have the best batting average. He told me what I was doing wrong and taught be exactly what to do. I thank him for everything he’s done for me.” The Wyoming County resident continues to hone her game in the off season, even while participating in other sports. “Throughout the winter, I play indoor field hockey,” she said. “I go to the batting cages

The Lions will now try and take the momentum from their winning season into the district playoffs. “I’m not sure who we’re playing first round yet, but last night I went and watched Coughlin and Crestwood.

I have a coach at Battaglia’s that helps me with my batting.” Croasdale think it’s critical for the young players to develop a good relationship with the veterans early in their careers. “The seniors try to help the younger girls so we can communicate on the field,” she said. Brander thinks the senior is one of the hardest workers he has ever coached, and an excellent example for the younger girls to follow. “She is probably one of the hardest workers on the field,” he said. “At practice she is always asking for extra repetitions taking ground balls and extra swings. I’ve never heard a complaint out of her. Her work ethic is pretty much unmatched.” The Lady Lions have won two of their last three games, and Brander is confident they can continue to win if they keep doing what has made them successful. “We need to drive in base runners when they are in scor-

Everyone is gunning for you.” Palmer, however, never stopped aiming for another straightset victory. “I definitely had the confidence I was going to end this in two,” Palmer said. Palmer won four straight games for a 6-5 lead. Brand fought back to force a tiebreaker, but Palmer won the match’s final six points to take his second gold medal of the week.
